Bell Labs Wallpaper – Part Deux

This is brilliant. Anybody had a look at the latest NY Times Sunday Review? There is a fantastic piece about the culture of innovation at Bell Labs. One of the pictures from the piece is the famous Erwitt photo of Bell Labs NJ, that I spoke in length about a few posts earlier. This picture is in color. It is a must read for anyone interested in anything tech/science related. Click on the image to go to NY Times to read the article. I love it and am currently reading it.

Innovation and the Bell Labs Miracle - NY Times

Many thanks to Don Monroe for leading me to the piece.

On a related note, just couldn’t stop mentioning the Prima Donna of Boneheadedness, that is McKinsey & Company. Can you imagine the cream of consulting business advised Bell that they don’t foresee any future for the mobile phone market?
